i have tons of apps on my honor note 10 but i would like to try this if anybody can tell how's the sound quality compared to stock rom.
also does the stereo works correctly when the phone is in landscape to the right? tried some open kirin roms and it was awful. stereo channels were inverted if you rotate phone to the right, and you couldn't hear footsteps in pubg.

Error installing zip file. This package is for device: ravel; this device is kirin970

---------- Post added at 06:53 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:51 PM ----------

Probably should edit
Code:
META-INF\com\google\android\updater-script


---------- Post added at 07:02 PM ---------- Previous post was at 06:53 PM ----------

Got this now that I fixed the updater-script:

assert failed: run_program("/sbin/sh", "/system/bin/releasetools.kirin970.sh") == 0

Updater process ended with ERROR: 7
Error installing zip file "/external_sd/...


---------- Post added at 07:14 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:02 PM ----------

Update: it doesn't install correctly, even when I change the device names in updater-script. The device doesn't boot, and skips straight to e-recovery. I also think recovery (TWRP) got overwritten with the flash via the boot img rewrite, so I have to revert to stock to try again.

which twrp you used?

This one: https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=11410932744536987360

---------- Post added at 03:38 AM ---------- Previous post was at 03:27 AM ----------

Currently, my phone hangs on the TWRP logo (your TWRP, even when I install your version . I had gotten the old version of TWRP to run upon reverting to stock (stock still wouldn't boot, though, even after reverting via EMUI recovery), but /system would only get mounted read-only. So kind of stuck here. I also tried fastboot flash system on a number of images with no success in booting. I recall I had to flash a zip to disable encryption of /system. Is that still the case, and if so where do I find that zip?

okay, so i managed to install the rom successfully.
it was a bit of a trial and error but i made it.
so, you need to be on emui 8. if you're on emui 9, here is the link on how to downgrade: https://huaweiadvices.com/downgrade-huawei-android-pie-emui-9-0-to-oreo-emui-8/

after you downgraded your phone successfully, you can proceed to the next step.
next step is installing the right recovery. first, you install this one: https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=11410932744536987360
then you flash rom and gapps. boot into OS. if you did everything right, it should boot.
now, with the recovery we installed, there will be error with read only system and you won't be able to use your phone right.
so, next step is to install this recovery: https://androidfilehost.com/?fid=4349826312261697516
now the order of installing stuff is very important. don't install second recovery before doing all the steps above.
after successfull installation of second recovery, you will need to wipe data. not just factory reset but full wipe.
when the wiping is done, you can now install rom again, gapps and magisk. then you install this zip: https://zackptg5.com/downloads/Disable_Dm-Verity_ForceEncrypt_01.15.2020.zip
by the name of the zip you could figure out that it is about disabling force encryption and all that good stuff.
and you are done. now everything should work properly.

problems so far: when you rotate phone to the right, stereo doesn't follow orientation so it's reversed and you can't play fps games. also, overall sound quality is bad

Thanks for posting this. So in my situation, with a read-only /system on EMUI 8, and a TWRP that hangs on the logo, do I need to revert to stock via Hi-suite? I'm in the process of trying dload method to get to EMUI 9 and try some other ROMs at the moment

you just need to flash stock recovery and do a factory reset or full wipe. that should do it

I tried exactly this, but TWRP still hangs on the TWRP logo (both versions). I had locked, stock EMUI 9 running from the dload method, so I did fastboot oem unlock with my bootloader code, which worked. Then a forced factory reset, and without first booting, I flashed twrp. No luck.

Any suggestions? I may also need stock recovery for EMUI 9 if you know where to find that...

you should let it boot. install emui with dload, let it boot and then try flashing twrp. it might hang a bit, but it will work. sometimes a reboot is needed

I got this ROM to install manually via fastboot flash system once I upgraded to EMUI 9. The problem is, now I can't even get to TWRP when I fastboot flash recovery_ramdisk and then press the volume keys (it just goes to EMUI now). I'll continue experimenting

---------- Post added at 05:33 PM ---------- Previous post was at 05:17 PM ----------

Update: the phone was in a transitory state, where running the dload method had failed, hence /system was unencrypted and booting to recovery_ramdisk would fail. I did volume+up on boot to load EMUI recovery, tried a factory reset, and now hanging again at TWRP. Will try a factory reset with legacy EMUI recovery and repeat...

when on emui 9, it's pretty hard to get into twrp. you have to hold on vol up and power when booting to get into twrp. and also, those open kirin roms are no better than this one. this one even feels like the best

just be careful. huawei phones are pretty finicky and love to brick when you interrupt them in upgrading, downgrading or installing anything. it's all good when you go to custom roms, but those often lack features. i had high hopes for this rom but i just can't get over the fact how bad the sound quality is compared to the stock rom. i'm returnig back to emui 8 and probably will sell this phone in some time. thinking about buying rog phone 2, but i love the big screen of the honor note 10

Yes, indeed: you need to press and HOLD the volume up rocker AND hold the power button for a real delay. You might expect the phone to turn off again, but it doesn't. You boot to TWRP.

Now, I have the first TWRP installed, but it still hangs on the TWRP logo (EMUI 9). Not sure if I missed a step, but here's what I did:

  1. dload method to EMUI 9 latest
  2. boot to download mode; fastboot oem unlock
  3. wait for factory reset
  4. let the phone reboot. Turn it off to download mode again
  5. flast twrp to recovery_ramdisk
  6. boot to recovery with aforementioned method

Hopefully, I missed something down the line, because I really need root at the very least. Unless someone can point me to the stock boot.img file, I don't see how I'll get root on this device if TWRP won't boot.
